William Walton

‘Crown Imperial’ is an orchestral march by the English composer William Walton. This weekend, my daughter played it along with the rest of the National Children’s Orchestra in the wonderful setting of Hever Castle. The piece was was first performed at the coronation of King George VI in 1937 and is forever associated with the Crown. It’s clearly got the Pomp and Circumstance. Happy Birthday Ma’am.
